Another Pennsylvania Delegation Makes a Pilgrimage to Oanton, Mr. Bryan Partially Collapses After Addressing Tammany Hall—A : Big Demonstration. Canton, 0., Sept. 30.—After an all-; night ride on the cars, a delegation of 400 enthusiastic voters from Center county, Pa., arrived here atcighto'clock Wednesday morning . and inarched through a blinding rain to the Tabernacle. Muj. McKinley took an early and hurried breakfast, and was driven t« meet his visitors a few moineiite after their arrival. His appearance on the stage was the signal for an outburst of cheering. The men from Pennsylvania' forgot nil about their long ride and dismal weather. They threw their hats in the air and. shouted, cheered and applauded for 'nearly five minutes. The spokesman was-W. E. Gray, of Bellefonte, chairman of the county republican committee..'Hc called attention .to one' of the banners; which the delegation brought aaid,-Svhich bore the inscription: "The first county in Pennsylvania to instruct for McKinlsy." He dwelt-upon the diversified interests of .CenterJ-couTity and the city of Eellefonte niid^said that farmers, coal miners, quarryijien .and iron workers were largely represented in the delegation.- He closed his remarks by assuring Maj. M-oJKiuley that Pennsylvania" would give; him 300,000 plurality. Before Mnj.'M-iiKinley. spoke, ex-Mayor Cnssidy, of Capt mi,. made some brief remarks. A great many citizens o£ Canton and. Stark couuty, O., came from Center county. Pa,, and when Mnj. MeKinley. rose to respond, he K]>oke of this fact and paid tribute to the excellent character of the people who came 1o Ohio' 'from that part 'of Pennsylvania. Con-. tinuing, he paid: "Whatever other slates may have done in tha past, your plorlous old common-, wealth has always-1>cen true to the doctrines of tho republican party, • and In every national contest has boon true to the republican cause. .A visit Irom Penn- eylvanlans Is always enjoyed by me.. -I. like that old state. ' "My ancestors came from It, and. I have for you a ffiellng of kinship. I know your great resources. I know your wonderful manufacturing achievements. 'I know the wealth, of your state and Its splendid cltl- innslilp, n.nd I am always glad to be assured by Pennsylvania tliat In this great national contest for public honor, public and private honesty, for the supremacy of law and order, for good government and rood politics, and good morals, your great state will lead In the triumphant march for republican principles. "I have often wondered If Pennsylvania's powerful Influence for stability, conservatism and prosperity in the union, and Its great strength and self-support- Ing capacity as a commonwealth In that union, were properly appreciated. Her agricultural, commerce and manufacturing while independent in one sense,.have always been mutually inter-dependent,: beneficial and heJpful." : •ii-« A PARTIAL COLLAVSE. Mr. Brynn Exhausted After Speaking to Tammany—III» Tour Telling on Him. New York, Sept; 30.—Seldom in the 'history of the city has there been a larger crowd in Union square than was congregated Tuesday night about the two stands at which Candidate Bryan was scheduled to speak, and greativaa the disappointment among the people who stood so patiently in the drenching rain thut they did not hear him, for he temporarily collapsed as he stepped from His carriage at the speakers' stand. As he himself said after his recovery, it was the first time during the arduous campaign that he had felt exhausted. His carriage arrived at the labor meeting at 9:40 o'clock, when the raiu.was coming down' in sheets. As he stepped to the sidewalk Mr. Bryan told Mr. Bewail.and his other companions that he felt tired out. He was assisted by the police to the pavilion used as a shelter for the park police immediately in the rear of the speakers' stand. There he rested for ten minutes. He said there was nothing serious the matter with him, and that he felt strong enough to mount the speakers' stand and bow his acknowledgments to the crowd. He was almost carried to the stand. As he reached it he looked as if he would drop. He trembled and h'is face wos deathly pale. Untried to iemi'le kindly to the' crowd -whtefr was-yelling, but his attempt was'-a^yaln one. He .turned quickly from, the: crowd, as if fearful of bis strengthi.'.ajnd'r the police, who had reserved a passageway, assisted him to' his carriage.' 'He":was driven at once to the Bryan andiSewall clubhcadquar-| ter« in Fourth ivejiue, between Seven-, teenth and Eighteenth streets, .where; ho drank some 'milk. A little later he took the platfornV from which Mr.'; Bewail had been speaking and addressed' the members of the club briefly, Mr.< Bryan was then ; drlycn to the Hotel Bartholdl, where,,-w^h; Mr. SewaU.ahd the Tammany committee; he enjoycd-a; beefsteak and a-bijth to put hiia in condition.. .Mr. -Bryan, took the train at 1 Jersey .City at inidtiight for- Harper,'<f Ferry. - .- .• ••'"!••••„ -.-' .- ••'•;.'" - -.';.

" As early as seven o'clock Tammany^ hall was crowded and the police..were; wrestling with 'the thousands outside,' who were demanding admission, whichi' when they di$ not get it, drove;them to the various stands erected at. van-, tage points, within :.the space : -of six blocks of Tammany. The small.army of policemen.fought and struggled with the crowd to keep the streets open for traffic, but they, soon. gave, it'.up and allowed tLem to'stand.m'pssed In front of the.stands. The police who escorts eel .Mr. Bryan throuc-lii the. HTIPB '"had to'fiE'bt^liRe tig-ers, the people refusing to. move .even when the horses almost trampled ttipcin them.. At 7:45 o'clock John W. Seller was presented .as the presiding! cifflcer of the Tammany hall nicetlng.-nrid lie accepted the place with n,'brief speech on the alleged evils of the gold standard. When Mr, Keller had concluded a *et of resolutions was read •and adopted with a whoop. ,-Cnndlrtnten cheerod. At 8:03 Mr. Bryanappeared ou the ,tiHje._ Ou ei'.hej: aide of liim were Ai> : thur Sewall, the vice-presidential candidate, rind George F. Williams, just nominated : by three conventions for the governorship of Massachusetts. The ensuing scene has rarely been equaled in old Tammany. The crowd fell into a frenzy and the tremendous volume of sound which began then continued seven' minutes, and the air was kaleidoscopic with waving hats and flags. Dur- 1 ing the'demonstration Mr. Bryan stood erect,'ga/irig-.directly before him. There was a gratified smile on his lips and a gleam of joy in his eyes. Kvcntually he raised.his band and semrt-d silence. Mr. Bryun begnn liis speech with n handsome compliment to Tninmany hall and concluded It lluis: ComtltaMonal iJovomment Not Snfe.
